Stained Concrete?



HaHa! That is from my pot, not my two little helpers standing nearby! LOL! :)
I don't know if any of you are like me, but my pots tend to "pee" all over my concrete and stain it. In the past I just wait, and eventually, (like two years later!) it fades away - kinda! So as I was blog surfing the other day I saw a link on Someday Crafts for homemade BLEACH SCRUB, from the Homemade Mammas blog. I started thinking, "Hmmmmm...I wonder if that would work on my concrete?" Well, see for yourself!

To make the bleach scrub, use two parts baking soda, to one part bleach. I used 4 Tbsp baking soda, and 2 Tbsp bleach. I also used one of those scrubby brushes to scrub the concrete.


I did have to repeat if a few times, especially where the base of the pot was, but eventually it came mostly off (there is still a really faint ring from the pot.) But look how good it looks!

Go HERE to see the Homemade Mammas post. Thanks ladies for the tip!

I'm enjoying your blog this morning! I wanted to tell you that Bar Keepers' Friend will scrub up concrete and masonry tile, I've used it with great results even on rust stains.

Scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are borrowing time on a NASA supercomputer to find out how to better mix the ingredients in concrete to make it stronger.Concrete Services
